He said the firm would continue to invest in the UK no matter what, adding that Google was proud of its profits, without which there would be a "cost".
Mr Schmidt said: "[Google] makes profits and we're proud of it... less profits has a cost...the law will have to change for Google to change its tax arrangements."
When he was asked if the current set up was "unethical", he replied: "No."
The Googe boss said the UK was "too important" for the firm.
"We will continue to invest in Britain no matter what," he added.
